  • Can you take cephalexin and tamiflu together?
    She steered with aches, pain, fever, congestion in lungs. Started on Donalson. The mucous was clear at the time. After three days aches persisted and very low to no fever. Took to clinic. Dr said she has,flu and started her on Tamiflu. We took her off cephalexin. Coughing persists after 6 days and mucous now yellow green.
    Should we start her back on cephalexin?
  • Can i take nyquil if i'm on cephalexin
    I"ve had a sore throat for 8 days, I'm taking cephalexin for an ear infection. My question is "can I take Nyquil for my throat when I' on cephalexin?"
  • Mucous in stools rolling std jab
    Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Balanitis, a small white ulcer has appeared on my foreskin caused by the trauma of the condition.

    I went to the ER for the problem, worrying that it maybe and std, the nurse and doctor there told me to keep the ulcer clean and to keep strong soaps away from it, but to be safe they gave me the std shot along with 4 tablets to take. The next morning and ever since, I have been experiencing bad nausea and what started with comstipation, has now turned into dhiarea, when I pass a stool which has some sort of solidity to it, it is coated in mucous. Alongside this. Every time I have food sitting in my stomach, I feel very sick to the stomach.


    Just wondering if this is a side effect of the drug, or if I have some kind of candida which is reacting with the drugs?? I had the jab on Wednesday and felt Ill first thing in the morning the next day. This is the third day of the illness, but seems less extreme throughout the day.

    Sorry for the graphic nature of this post, just wondering if anyone had any answers before I spent another small fortune at the doctors!

  • Keflex linked to coughing blood?
    I was put on a week-long course of cephalexin/Keflex for an upper respiratory infection. It's been 5 days and I'm still coughing up blood. Before I started the medication I was starting to cough up a little, but now it's becoming worse. I did read that antibiotics for pneumonia or TB can cause coughing up blood, but I wasn't sure about Keflex.
  • Achilles tendon tear
    At the end of my 10 day treatment time on Cephalexin 500 mg, I experience diarrhea, so I took acidophilus three times a day, and it went away. I also woke up with a Achilles ligament tear, with a bulge in the tendon, not a rupture. No changes in my daily routine, in regards to exercise, just swimming and walking.
  • Cephalexin 500 mg caused allergic reaction (1 response)
    I developed a rash that quickly turned to painful, itchy blistering after taking cephalexin 500mg capsules for only 2 days (the prescription was for 10 days). The rash was on my hands, legs, back, & arms. I was sent by my doctor to the hospital emergency room. diagnosed as an allergic reaction to cephalexin. treated with steroids & another antibiotic. this was one of the scariest episodes of my life. I hope people are reporting this type of problem.
